This medieval record book was compiled in the early 15th century by the nuns of Godstow Abbey near Oxford. Although the records are mainly in Latin, this edition summarises and indexes them in English. The introduction provides new information about the abbey, sheds light on women's literacy, and social relations in the diocese of Lincoln.
